Total Recall (1990)

This week on Alcohollywood, we’re gearing up for this year’s latest unnecessary remake by revisiting the 1990 sci-fi classic Total Recall! In this Philip K Dick adaptation, surprisingly Austrian Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) goes to get an exciting fantasy implanted into his brain, only to find out he’s already living it…or is he?

A great combination of gore and classic Arnold action combined with a thought-provoking idea or two and one of Jerry Goldsmith’s best scores, you’ll have a blast along with our custom cocktail and rules! Check them out below!


┬áTHIS EPISODE’S DRINK: The Triple-Nippled Space Hooker

2 parts kiwani juice

1 part citrus cordial*

2 parts tequila

*HOW TO MAKE CORDIAL: Squeeze desired number of lemon, orange and limes into pan, add sugar, place under heat. Boil until syrup forms.

Combine and stir; garnish with kiwani peel.





  1. Whenever glass is broken
  2. Any time someone says “Mars”
  3. Every time someone (usually Arnold) gives a pained expression


Cohaagen (Ronny Cox) says “In thirty seconds you’ll be dead…and I’ll blow this place up and be home in time for Corn Flakes!”

Check us out next week, as we travel the stars with David Hasselhoff and Christopher Plummer in one of the most amazingly entertaining Roger Corman productions we’ve ever seen – the 1978 Italian Star Wars rip-off Starcrash!

  1. Q: Why does everyone always use the same still whenever they write an article about Total Recall?

    A: Because it’s an awesome still. It should be the cover of the DVD.
